  1. Hi, I am currently teaching First Grade for the very first time in my five years of teaching. Or rather, tomorrow's gonna be my first day of the new academic year. Initially, I was extremely apprehensive of teaching first grade (apprehensive is too mild a word, actually). I'd imagined I would have to deal with overprotective parents and crying/screaming children and I'd be at a loss at how to do 'proper teaching'. But after reading through your blog and other First Grade teachers' blogs, I am reminded of what being a teacher is all about. It isn't about teaching concepts or skills or knowledge. It is first and foremost (as you aptly put it) about the children learning and growing. While I am still anxious about my competence as a First Grade teacher, I am inspired by you and many other First Grade teachers who put in their heart and soul into being the best teachers they could ever be! Thank you!
